From dark beer to green food, get your Irish on and make some of these 10 Best St. Patrick’s Day Recipes.
When I head to Southern California to visit friends and family, one of my favorite restaurants in Newport Beach is Muldoon’s Irish Pub. I crave that warm Irish Soda bread with melted butter. I dream about it, in fact. I thought I could only get something that delicious when I visited, until I figured out how to make it on my own and I would argue that mine was even better! I’m not a beer drinker, and am especially not a dark beer drinker, but this time of year I love to break out the Guinness and use it in my cooking. Did you know stout + chocolate is amazing? I used it in my Guinness Chocolate Cake as well as in a chocolate sauce recipe and a Guinness ice cream float, if you can believe it. My husband, however, does love all kinds of beer so last year I served him up this Black Velvet. Cooking with beer makes most recipes better, and if you’re looking for something great to make this St. Patrick’s day, you might want to try my Guinness steak or Irish cheddar beer bread. Of course, one can never go wrong with a delicious Shepherd’s Pie. If all of those recipes didn’t motivate you to make something fun for St. Patrick’s day, I’ve got more motivation for you below with ten more delicious recipes that are sure to please!
